Kimihara Himeno is a rather shy but friendly Japanese high school girl, the only daughter of an average middle-class family. She goes to a normal high school, hangs out with her close friends Nozomi and Kyouko, and generally has the same dreams and worries a girl her age is expected to have — like falling in love or simply mulling about whether or not she overeats everyday.However, Himeno also happens to be a centaur. This in itself isn't much of a big deal though, when literally everyone else on the planet display characteristics that might mark them strange if they lived on our world — like wings, tails, and animal ears.Written by Murayama Kei and serialized in Comic Ryuu magazine, Centaur no Nayami/セントールの悩み (or Centaur's Worries) follows Hime as she experiences first-hand the highs and lows of being a teenager along with her friends.Although at first glace just another Slice of Life series that replaces humans with fantasy races, it soon becomes apparent that the author put a lot of thought into figuring out just how such races would act, live, and even interact with each other in a contemporary setting. The world-building is impressive, to say the least, and likely the main draw to non-Slice of Life fans.Released in North America by Seven Seas Entertainment under the name A Centaur's Life.
Centaur's Worries gives examples of the following:
